The first pin-up I ever had, aged seven, was a life-size photograph of Cliff Richard wearing what I recall were cream slacks with white slip-on shoes and a loosely fitting t-shirt that appeared to be made out of the same material normally associated with string vests. He was caught in mid-air, with the image set against a lurid tangerine coloured background, suggesting sunshine and fun. It was a publicity picture for Summer Holiday, his 1962 musical, and measured a good six by four, and that’s feet not inches.

Blood Lake/Still Point/Dark Matter

Blood Lake/Still Point/Dark Matter, an intriguing title for a photography show. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to find out more about the work of Ian Land, Alexander Brattell and Chris Wainwright at their exhibition at St Mary in the Castle. It’s an interesting show, each photographer political in their own way.

Cookman Collects

There’s an astonishing collection of old cameras on show at St Mary in the Castle until Sunday as part of PhotoHastings 2016. Alex Brattell went along with his boring modern camera for a preview during the installation.

Politically charged imagery

Photology – a monthly event presenting discussions around photography from some of the most significant artists, curators and writers working today- has been an integral part of the PhotoHastings calendar since the events begun in 2012.

Octet

In musical terms an octet refers to eight singers or musicians who perform together in complementary fashion. In Octet, currently on exhibition at St Mary in the Castle, eight Photo Hastings photographers exhibit together in a complimentary fashion that any musical ensemble would be proud of.

The Sixties in black and white

It’s 50 years since the 60s were in full swing. Writers might nominate the 20s, 40s, or the 80s as times of particular fashion and culture but rarely do they conveniently start at the beginning of the decade. So 2016 is not a bad time to celebrate that extraordinary, happening time when it was in full swing.

Red Ladies Clod Ensemble

Last autumn, the Clod Ensemble came to Hastings to release their performance art piece, The Red Ladies, on the unsuspecting folk of Hastings. Dressed in their black coats, red scarves, black sunglasses and red heels, The Red Ladies caused quite a stir in the town and the Zoom Arts’ photographers were there to capture the day. Steve Kilmartin reports.
